Digital Storm's Vanquish Gaming PCs Nearly Eliminate Pre Built Pricing Premium

Maximum PC: One of the beneifts of rolling your own rig is that you can potentially save money versus buying a pre built machine. That isn't always true of bulk OEMs that shovel piles of trialware and other third-party bloat as a way of reducing costs, but more often than not, boutique system builders attach hefty premiums to off-the-shelf parts you can purchase and assemble on your own. Digital Storm is looking to change the game. (Digital Storm, PC)

I looked into starting my own gaming PC business back in 05. I talked to ATI about selling their video cards in computers and solo. They told me plainly that I would have to by X amount for Y price, the price from them at the time for the best video card ATI had was $49 each. Something that really got me was that I couldn't sell them for under Z price if I ever did they would jerk my licenses.

What garbage. FX 4300 and HD7750 for 700 dollars, is an awful deal.

I think that rig could be built for $550
